The Green Mill

Every Thursday night you can re-visit the past and feel like you are in Chicago circa 1939. The Green Mill has tons of history connected to it and it’s one of my favorite places in the city.

Singing with David Sherman and Amanda Wolff

Join me along with Amanda Wolff, David Sherman, Matt Lewis, Rugani and the The Alan Gresik Swingshift Orchestra!

All the songs the band performs are original charts from the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s. Bandleader Alan Gresik has access to the vast collection of arrangements at the Chicago Public Library. These arrangements were used on local radio shows back in the 1930’s, played by their “house” band. Alan told me that in some cases, the arrangements were still in their unopened cellophane wrappers. So its possible that some of these old arrangements are being heard for the first time.

One of my favorites is this version of Irving Berlins “Let Yourself Go.”
